DescriptionIn the late 1980s, the Starkey Project was initiated to study interactions among North American elk (Cervus elaphus), mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) and domestic cattle at Starkey Experimental Forest and Range (Starkey) in northeastern Oregon. As part of the Starkey Project, an automated radio telemetry system was developed to collect an unprecedented volume of location data on both wild and domestic ungulates (Rowland et al. 1997). That radio telemetry system was based on rebroadcast Long RAnge aid to Navigation- (LORAN-) C signals. In this paper, we provide an overview of the databases resulting from this effort.
